I'm Kind of About Respecting the Buffet

Another example of why I love overconfident jerks.

Belly bulge belies buffing up by Beckett

Six-pack? Red Sox ace Josh Beckett isn’t even sporting a one-pack!

Beckett, working out at the Sox’ Minor League complex yesterday, looks like he spent the winter eating barbecue and drinking beer down there in South Texas.

But calm down, Red Sox Nation. Our Florida spies say that Josh hasn’t gone Schilling, circa spring 2007, and he isn’t actually as flabby as this photo makes him look.

In fact, Beckett arrived in camp with his personal trainer who helped build a gym for Josh inside his Texas compound and, word is, No. 19 is in better shape than he was last year at this time.

You have to appreciate the spin at the end... sure, he's in better shape than last year.

BTW, here's "Much Worse Shape" Blister Boy from Feb. 2007:

his appeal to women remains a a profound mystery to me

{says the woman who finds scott rolen wildly attractive, I know}

i think the appeal lies in two things

1) egotistical asshat
2) throws a baseball for a living

am probably pretty sure it's mostly the latter

1) intelligent
2) funny
3) articulate
4) um... the anti-beckett physically. he wears the hell out of a uniform.
